    I can't believe it! BIL got married. They were both deep in debt and have made numerous and repeated comments about how "lucky" we are to be debt free - even though they do & have (had, they separated already but that's not the story) much more than us. So a part of their wedding present we...

    Last week I was out walking my dog on trash day. As I was walking past my neighbor’s trash heap (I say heap because they always have more trash than will fit in the trash can and they just pile it up on the road), I noticed a cute wire basket that was decorated with painted wooden sunflowers. I...
